Pudding is not as luxurious or decadent as a pot de crème, mousse or crème brûlée. It is so nostalgic, and simple, and that is what we admire about it!
This dessert is very easy to prepare and is also very popular among children. Maybe because of the lack of time we have, we often choose the ready puddings and make ourselves relax by pouring them in warm milk! But making homemade vanilla pudding is another pleasure you should try. This delicious pudding can be one of the best accompaniments to serving delicious cookies and fruits.
In the following, we have prepared an easy recipe for preparing vanilla pudding, which you can prepare and eat in a short time and without any trouble. Check out how simple this is. It is time for homemade pudding to get the recognition it deserves.
In a 2-quart saucepan, combine sugar, corn flour, and salt. Gently mix in the milk. Cook over medium heat, stirring continuously until mixture thickens and boils. Boil and whisk for 1 minute.
Slowly mix at least half of the heated mixture with egg yolks, then stir in a hot saucepan. Boil and whisk for 1 minute and then remove from heat. Mix it with some butter and vanilla.
Add the pudding to the dessert dishes. Cover and chill in the fridge for around 1 hour or until chilled. Store in the refrigerator.
Top with some whipped cream and candy sprinkles if you would like.
Cornstarch is an easy-to-use thickener, taking just a few minutes on the stovetop. It is necessary to bring the milk mixture to a full boil to enable the starch.
The vanilla (which you should also stir in a little fresh vanilla bean paste) is added at the end so that it does not lose its strong flavor and scent, which can be reduced by direct heat.
